The Broadcast Film Critics Assn. clearly has a thing for crime, with Monday’s announcement of the TV nominees for the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards revealing lots of love for shows about skirting the law.

“The Americans,” famous for its super sneaky Russian spies; “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” and its depiction of the murder and aftermath; and “Escape at Dannemora,” with its tale of a real life jailbreak, lead all television nominees with five mentions apiece.
